Elizabeth Suda, Jewelry Designer, Entrepreneur, and Social Activist

Put simply:  the world needs more women like Elizabeth Suda!  After two years working in the Merchandising Department of Coach, she bagged it all and headed for Laos.  Elizabeth was on a mission to understand how local, sustainable crafts made by women could become part of the global fashion industry.  It was there that she learned bout the Secret War in Laos (1963-1974), which left behind 80 million unexploded bombs.  That trip made quite an impact, because before long, Article22 was born, and with it, the Peacebomb bracelet, handmade by local Laotian artists from Vietnam War shrapnel.  Article22 has developed into a global business with an ever evolving collection of jewelry.  This is truly a conversation you can't afford to miss!
